This talk was delivered as part of the first ever BSAVA lecture stream on ‘Practical aspects of dog breeding’. Dr. Dan O’Neill and Aimee Llewellyn (of the Royal Veterinary College & UK Kennel Club respectively) presented information on the practical approaches veterinary practices can take to improve the advice they give to breeder clients. Both speakers emphasised the vital role that veterinary practitioners can play in improving dog health at a population level and highlighted the importance of large-scale, ongoing health surveillance projects such as VetCompass.
